    Win7 + XP dual boot problem

    I renamed my XP versions to _old and then copied those from the EasyBCD directory that you pointed me to into the root directory. I then rebooted, and sure enough the one time I tried booting into XP it booted fine. So your files will work sometimes and mine from the XP install DVD work...

    Win7 + XP dual boot problem

    FYI... So I just rebooted twice trying to go into XP. It worked only one out of two times. I'll have to try more times, but it *might* be that with EasyBCD 2.0 files it would have worked had I tried it more. Just wanted to give you a heads up before you fry too many brain cells trying to...

    Win7 + XP dual boot problem

    Tried but no success Thanks for the suggestion. I did download the latest beta and installed it and followed your suggestion. The interesting thing is that the autoconfigure directed the bootloader for XP to the same hard drive as Win7 was on. Not surprisingly then, when I rebooted and...

    Win7 + XP dual boot problem

    Can someone please help me with a dual boot problem I've been having for about a month (since Win7 came out)? For history, I had XP installed on my primary drive. I used gparted to split it, and then I ran the Win7 beta followed by Win7 RC on the second partition. But then when I got a real...
